Windows 7: UXtheme isn't working - all themes revert to Aero

The Desktop Window Manager Sessions Manager may have been disabled because of using the classic theme not sure.
I think the Repair Install may be a good idea. Let us know.

Jerry,

I had the default Aero theme selected and had all Aero features turned on, so that's not it.

I'll try a repair install if I can ever get Windows to let me do it.

No one who can help seems to be looking at my new thread... hopefully soon!
